Hello, and welcome back to 2003 when mystery Ebay auctions for mint condition copywriters, Carrie's colon, human super bowl ad space and yes, even super bowl ads were all the rage as a way in going viral. Someone is selling Banksy's true identity on Ebay in a bold retro move that has already gotten a bid of US $999,999.00! I don't see why the bidder can't just read the Daily Mail, or CBC news, it's probably beneath such a rich fella, but these papers claim Banksy is a middle-class Bristol man named Robin Gunningham.
Not sure what to make of this one. Either Bansky has been hanging around Ebay on his downtime for years, buying trinkets between sock puppet accounts to get great feedback and look legit, waiting for this moment and we are all now watching the greatest Bansky piece of all time... Or someone out there is trying to blackmail the real Banksy. Both options would make a decent TV-movie, brb I gotta go write some screenplays.
